Here Lies One Whose Name Was Written in Water Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. O Death (Rock Me Asleep) (3:53)
O Death, o death, rock me asleep,
(In water...)

Toll on, thou passing bell;
Ring out my doleful knell;
For I must...
There is no remedy.

My pains, my pains, who can express?
Alas, they are so strong!

My dolours will not suffer strength
My life for to prolong.

Toll on, thou passing bell;
Ring out my doleful knell;
For I must...
There is no remedy.

Farewell, farewell, my pleasures past!
Welcome, my present pain!

I feel my torment so increase
That life cannot remain.

Alone, alone...
Can nobody hear me?

[Lyrics presumably by Anne Boleyn (1507(?)-1536) ca. 1576]
2. Downvain (5:43)
Flow my tears, fall from your springs,
Exiled for ever, let me mourn.

Flow my tears, fall from your springs,
Exiled for ever, let me mourn
Where night's black bird her sad infamy sings,
There let me live forever.

My torture is thrown;
My Torture is thrown.

My torture is thrown;
My Torture is thrown.

Hark you shadows that in darkness dwell!

Down vain lights, shine you no more,
No nights are dark enough for those
That in despair their lost fortunes deplore;
There let me live forever.

My torture is thrown;
My Torture is thrown.

My torture is thrown;
My Torture is thrown.

Hark you shadows that in darkness dwell,
Hark you shadows that in darkness dwell,
Learn to contemn light;
Happy, they that in hell
Feel not the world's despite.

Hark you shadows, there let me live forever.

[Lyrics from John Dowland's (1563-1626) "Flow my tears"]
3. Stay (5:15)
Stay, Time, awhile thy flying,
Stay, Time, awhile thy flying,
Stay, Time, awhile thy flying,
Stay and pity me dying.
For Fate and friends have left me,
And of comfort (has) bereft me.

Come, come, close my eyes;
Better to die blessed,
Close my eyes, close my eyes,
Come, come, close my eyes;
Than to live thus distressed.

Stay, Time, awhile thy flying,
To whom shall I disdain me?
When thus friends do I disdain me?
'Tis Time (that) must befriend me,
Drown'd in sorrow, to end me.

Come, come, close my eyes;
Better to die blessed,
Close my eyes, close my eyes,
Come, come, close my eyes;
Than to live thus distressed.

Come, come, close my eyes;
Better to die blessed,
Close my eyes, close my eyes,
Come, come, close my eyes;
Than to live thus distressed.

Ah-eyes,
Better to die blessed,
Close my eyes, close my eyes.

(Come, come, close my eyes;
Better to die blessed,
Close my eyes, close my eyes,
Come, come, close my eyes)
Than to live thus distressed.

[Lyrics from John Dowland's (1563-1626) "A Pilgrimes Solace - The Fourth Book of Songs" (1612)]
4. Disdain (4:20)
The sun grow cold in the western sky
And earlier and earlier
The sun submits to the moons rise
And after a summer of sorrow
I now embrace myself for a winter of despair

Every day deaths hand grips me so much tighter
And my mistakes are frozen in my mind

Even though I've often questioned why he has placed me here
I never had the motivation to challenge him
I once had a name but you have forgotten me
I still have a face one you could never forget
Pale white
And cold with sedation in my eyes
Where there was once life

I seem to be more machine than man
Now a shadow of what I used to be
With murder in my eyes and malice in my heart
I drop the final curtain on the bloodiest of tragedies
I quiver and shake with my remorse
As I head back into the storm from which I was born.

Now I know what it means to be alone
Oh, what it means to be so cold
A lonely assassin
With no place to go
A lonely assassin
With no place to call home
A lonely assassin
With no place to call his own.
5. Introit (2:08)
Requiem...
Requiem (to you)...
6. When I Have Fears That I May Cease To Be (6:17)
When I have fears that I may cease to be
Before my pen has glean'd my teeming brain,
Before high piled books, in charact'ry,
Hold like rich garners the full-ripen'd grain;

When I behold, upon the night's starr'd face,
Huge cloudy symbols of a high romance,
And think that I may never live to trace
Their shadows, with the magic hand of chance;

And when I feel, fair creature of an hour!
That I shall never look upon thee more,
Never have relish in the faery power
Of unreflecting love! -- then on the shore

Of (this) wide world I stand alone, and think
Till Love and Fame (and) nothingness (to) sink.

[Lyrics by John Keats (1795-1821)]
7. Luceat Eis (5:00)
...a luceat eis...

[Lyrics from the Catholic Requiem Mass]
8. Introit II (7:35)
Aeternam dona eis, Domine:
Et lux perpetua luceat eis,
Et lux perpetua luceat eis.

Te decet hymnus, Deus, in Sion,
Et tibi reddetur votum in Jerusalem:
Et lux perpetua luceat eis,
Et lux perpetua luceat eis.

O hear my prayer...
O hear my prayer...

All flesh shall come to thee Requiem:
Et lux perpetua luceat eis,
Et lux perpetua luceat eis.

...a luceat eis...

[Lyrics from the Catholic Requiem Mass]
9. Communion (4:52)
Lux aeterna luceat eis, Domine:
Cum Sanctis tuis in aeternum,
Qui pius es, requiem aeternam dona eis,
Domine: et lux perpetua luceat eis.

Cum Sanctis tuis in aeternum,
Qui pius es, qui pius es,
Dies illa, dies irae,
Calamitatis et miseriae,
Dies magna et amara valde.
Dum veneris judicare saeculum per ignem.

Requiem aeternum, aeternum...

[Lyrics from the Catholic Requiem Mass]
10. Sanctus (3:41)
How astonishing is the chance
Of leaving this world impress a sense
Of natural beauties on us; hallelujah!

I think of green fields; I muse
With the greatest affection on every flower
I have known from my infancy; hallelujah!

Their shapes and colours are as new to me
As if I had just created them
With a superhuman fancy; hallelujah!

It is because they are connected
With the most thoughtless and the happiest
Moments of life.

How astonishing is the chance
Of leaving this world impress a sense
Of natural beauties on us!

The simple flowers of our Spring
Are what I want to see again; hallelujah!

[Lyrics by John Keats (1795-1821)]
11. Darkness (bonus track) (6:48)
Where night's black bird (her sad) infamy sings.

Hark you shadows that in darkness dwell,
Hark you shadows that in darkness dwell,
Exiled for ever, let me mourn
Where night's black bird (her sad) infamy sings.

Down vain lights, shine you no more,
Learn to contemn (lights).

Where night's black bird her sad infamy sings,
There let me live forlorn, never may my woes be relieved.

Hark you shadows that in darkness dwell,
Hark you shadows that in darkness dwell
Exiled for ever, let me mourn
Where night's black bird (her sad) infamy sings.

Down vain lights, shine you no more,
Down vain lights, shine you no more,
Learn to contemn (lights).

There let me live in shadows that in darkness dwell.

Hark you shadows that in darkness dwell,
Hark you shadows that in darkness dwell,
Exiled for ever, let me mourn
Where night's black bird (her sad) infamy sings.

Hark you shadows that in darkness dwell,
Hark you shadows that in darkness dwell.

[Lyrics from John Dowland's (1563-1626) "Flow my tears"]
12. Darkness (Stromkern) (bonus track) (3:54)
Hark you shadows that in darkness dwell,
Hark you shadows that in darkness dwell,
Exiled for ever, let me mourn,
Where night's black bird (her sad) infamy sings.

Down vain lights, shine you no more,
Down vain lights, shine you no more,
Learn to contemn (lights).

Where night's black bird her sad infamy sings,
There let me live forlorn, never may my woes be relieved.

Hark you shadows that in darkness dwell,
Hark you shadows that in darkness dwell,
Exiled for ever, let me mourn,
Where night's black bird (her sad) infamy sings.

Down vain lights, shine you no more,
Down vain lights, shine you no more,
Learn to contemn (lights).

There let me live in shadows that in darkness dwell.

Hark you shadows that in darkness dwell,
Hark you shadows that in darkness dwell.
